Los Pleneros de la 21, the premier Spanish Harlem-based performing ensemble and non-profit organization, was founded in 1983 by JUAN GUTIÉRREZ (1996 NEA Heritage Fellow) and MARCIAL REYES ARVELO. Having toured extensively both nationally and internationally for over two decades, LP21 are considered New York’s preeminent BOMBA AND PLENA AMBASSADORS, bringing Puerto Rican culture to Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Latin America, Australia, Berlin, and countless other countries and prominent venues. They are the first Puerto Rican ensemble to perform in Carnegie Hall.
